Convert to toUpperCase giving me an error cannot read property null? I can't work out what i have left out.

I think my code looks the same as the hints example but keep getting an error cannot read null or something like that.

app.js
let firstName = 'Mike';
let lastName = 'Rush';
let role = 'developer';
let msg = (firstName + " " + lastName + ": "  + role);
let role = role.toUpperCase();

I think it's because you're declaring let role a second time.

Simply call .toUpperCase() on the role variable where you've stored it in your msg string.
